Trump says he 'gave up nothing' at Putin meeting

President Donald Trump is back to referring to the Russian Federation commotion as "a big hoax".

Democrats and Republicans questioned why Trump sat down last Monday for a two-hour face-to-face meeting with Putin in Helsinki with only translators present.

Trump was widely criticized for his rhetoric and demeanor in Helsinki after he appeared to side with Putin over the United States intelligence community on the subject of Russian election interference.

Republican voters overwhelmingly approve of President Donald Trump, even after a controversial summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

The public is calling his actions treason, saying that the private meeting with Putin and Trump's statements in the press conference afterward are a final straw in his series of efforts to cover up the attacks on America's 2016 election process, and to belittle and deride the investigation into Russia's involvement. Bob Casey, blasted Trump's conduct in Helsinki as "dangerous and reckless".

The share of voters who believe Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election rose to 65 percent, up 8 percentage points from June 2017, according to the poll.

Before his Aspen Security Forum appearance, Coats was already portrayed as a voice of dissent in the Trump administration by the mainstream media for seemingly standing up to Trump in the wake of the Helsinki summit, which Trump's opponents dubbed "disastrous" and "nothing short of treason".

A man Barletta hopes to join in the Senate, two-term Republican Sen.

Barletta also sounded different than Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., who said "the European countries are our friends, and the Russians are not" following a trip in which Trump also harshly criticized traditional allies at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit over what Trump called "delinquent" defense spending.

"Say that again. Did I hear you?" he asked, appearing amused.

Moscow has said "agreements" had been reached over the situation in Syria.

Republican Trey Gowdy, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform, said the evidence proves that Russian Federation "is not our friend and they tried to attack us in 2016", and Trump needs to be more forthright about it. A smaller 58 percent majority of conservatives approve of Trump's conduct at the summit.

Tuesday will be the first day Trump and the White House understands what protesters are saying as we have hired an individual who will be translating what the protesters are saying from English to Russian very loudly.
